Just brainstorming here as a curious dev and not on behalf of Amazon (the CLI is not my product and I cannot provide official guidance), but check out

Seems like you could have the credentials encrypted within a secure store and set up a retrieval app. You just need some asynchronous way to provide authorization to the app so it can return the credentials when they're requested before the credential request times out.

You can still use profiles too it seems.
